DONE DEAL: Arsenal confirm Torreira sale to Galatasaray

Arsenal have confirmed the sale of Lucas Torreira to Galatasaray.

The Uruguay midfielder moves to Turkey in a deal worth £5.5million, penning a four-year contract with his new club.

Torreira is the seventh player to leave the Emirates this summer.

The club stated: "Everyone at Arsenal thanks Lucas for his contribution during his time with us. We wish Lucas and his family the best of health and happiness in their new chapter with Galatasaray."

Torreira wrote on social media following the announcement: "I am very happy and excited to be a new Galatasaray player. I am convinced that this is the beginning of a long and successful history together. Thank you for trusting me and I promise to leave everything for these colours. Let's go Gala!"

Since signing in 2018 for £26m from Sampdoria, Torreira made 89 appearances for the Gunners.
